Compared to budget tires, Goodyear products can be quite pricey. But are they worth the extra money?

Ask A TIRECRAFT Expert: Are Goodyear Tires Worth The Price?
It is widely accepted that Goodyear tires are some of the best on the market, offering exceptional quality, road performance, and durability that makes them an obvious choice as the official partner of NASCAR.
But are they worth the price for the average Canadian driver? Well, that depends on the tire and driver in question.
In the case of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season, an ultra-high performance tire designed with NASCAR racing in mind, probably not. Unless you’re looking to max out track performance, your money is probably better spent elsewhere. But really, that’s to be expected of any sport-tuned, track-inspired tire, and the Goodyear Eagle Sport is but a drop of water in an oceanic catalog, comprising budget-friendly all-seasons, eco-friendly fuel-sippers, and rugged, winter-ready tires.
Once you look beyond the premium performance options, you’ll find plenty of Goodyear tire options that are more practical, more personalized to your needs, and more reasonably priced. And if cost-control is your top priority, Goodyear tires have plenty of budget-friendly options that can save you money both upfront and over the long haul, such as:
- The Goodyear Assurance MaxLife, which offers a mind-blowing 140,000km tread life limited warranty, along with all of the usual savings you’d expect from an all-season option, requiring no storage or seasonal changeovers.
- The Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max, which offers both an incredible 4% fuel economy improvement and 105,000km tread life limited warranty.
- The Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady, which is one of the few all-season/all-weather tires on the market to have received a severe snow service designation, so you won’t have to purchase a second set for winter or worry about storage and changeover headaches.
All three of these Goodyear tire options are highly practical for daily drivers, more affordable than Goodyear’s ultra-performance tires, and conducive to long-term savings through enhanced fuel economy, tread life, and all-season versatility. As long as you shop smart and buy based on your needs—not based on the results from top-tier track performance tests—Goodyear tires fit easily into almost any budget.
